Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

Newborn sessions for people I love are the best. Heather and Aaron are some of those people! Heather is actually a photographer, my studio mate, and a good friend. So I was immediately in love when I saw little miss Emmerly Rae, “Emmy” for short.

Aaron and Heather met through her cousin and some mutual friends about four years ago. They got married in October of 2017, and one year and and one month to the day later Emmy arrived. They are a very artistic couple, Heather sings and is a photographer, as well as a marketing director, and Aaron plays guitar. They both work out and Aaron also loves to golf.

Emmerly’s name means beautiful heart, which just melted me. Her middle name is Rae and that is after Heather’s Dad who had to have surgery to remove cancer this year, but is doing just fine now. They knew they wanted her to be a fighter just like her Papaw, and she sure was when she was in the NICU after she was born.

It was truly a joy to do their newborn session after everything that had happened while they were getting to this moment. Heather brought in the cutest little newborn things for me to use… perks of being a photographer, you know where to shop! I really am trying to get her to bring a few of those outfits and wraps back so I can keep using them!

Baby girl had such sweet expressions and her hair… OMG. It was so perfectly feathered, and a gorgeous color just like her mama. She was the perfect newborn model, so her mama must’ve been coaching her before the session.

Congratulations to my sweet friend and her amazing family of three!
